I decided this afternoon to get back to the basics, to put my baking and my food photography away for the time being and focusing on really and truly learning about natural light, flash and remembering how to play, to get back to my Adventure Days and striking out and exploring. Sure, I'll still take the occasional food/prop shot to submit to Shutterstock and Adobe Stock, but for right now, I need to just let lose and play. I'm looking forward to this relaxed way of shooting and am excited and eager to finally begin to master flash, especially high speed sync and showing motion with flash. Flash is just fun, I think. It's like playing for me, but also something that I've struggled with and don't feel confident in, and I want to change that.
I also caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror after my morning shower and food photography is not good for my waistline!
